Summer dress

Have you noticed how short the dresses are getting? I went to a high school graduation and saw some really cute vintage look dresses. Only problem.. the length. I don't think shortening the length to the butt cheek line makes it any cuter. Sadly, the dresses for my hula girls age group, has shortened in length also. So, we picked a pattern, pictured below.

And even this dress was much too short for me. That is the great thing about sewing, you can make adjustments.

We added a flower.

And this is the finished dress.

Throw a bolero or cardigan on and they are ready for church.
